Those looking for core-toning exercises may feel like they’ve made a wrong turn as they ease down the tree-lined McConnell Boulevard and pull up to a single-family house mid-block. But Pilatesblue owner Jamie K. Ullman sees individual clients from her own home studio in the back, eschewing the bustle of the gym scene for the serenity of a home garage. Ullman has Pilates certifications from Long Beach Dance and Conditioning Academy of Movement, Equinox and Lagree Fitness, among others, and has taught group classes and one-on-one students everywhere from Hollywood to Cape Town, South Africa. Despite the unassuming digs, Pilatesblue has become revered as one of the city’s best spots for straightforward, enjoyable workouts, with Ullman herself regularly regarded as a top trainer across Los Angeles.
